It isn't the e-tailer you buy it from that bundles the PSU with the case it is the company that makes the case itself that bundles the PSU. In any case bundled PSU/Case combos' PSUs are most always of low quality. It's kind of a gimmick. If the PSU is a name brand enermax that comes with the case you might be ok though.

You get what you pay for and under $100 for case and 450w psu is not a good thing

First thing I would do if possible is eyeball the case. Since these are "in stock" in the various stores..if you can take a look at the interior layout, do so. The limited descriptions are a little light on information. 2nd - if you like the case, the prices are really one with the firm knowledge that the psu is probably doo doo. Worst case scenario - sell the psu for $15 on e-bay with $15 shipping and handling and think of it as a DIY rebate.

I wouldn't feel right selling such a low quality PSU :(

Thanks for the warnings. I'll make sure to steer clear of cheap deals like these.

By the way, do you guys know of any Canadian based case/PSU sellers? I really like Xoxide but then I've got an assload of extra taxes and such for when it crosses the border.

I've looked at the PSU calculator, and it seems a little low to me. Could anyone give me a rough estimate of how much power I'll need?

Will said power supplies have long/enough cables to run in an Antec 900?

Thanks again Valtiel! :wink:
